There are times when you would want to remove hosting server. If you need to do something like this, you can get it done in a couple of steps.
You can remove the backup from the server via command line as follows:
1. Login into server as root.
2. Remove the backup by executing the following command
rm -rf /backup/cpbackup/weekly/username
rm -rf /backup/cpbackup/daily
For example, let’s see how to remove the backup for the domain test.com.
1. Get the user name from /var/cpanel/accounting.log
grep test.com /var/cpanel/accounting.log
2. Remove the backup for the domain test.com from weekly or daily as per the requirement
rm -rf /backup/cpbackup/weekly/test
rm -rf /backup/cpbackup/daily/test
That’s how you can have backups removed for a specific domain from the server.
